We Are THAT Family has a newsletter

One of my favorite blogs is We Are THAT Family. I love Kristin's writing style & think she's very funny. On August 1 she is beginning a newsletter called The Family Room. I have already subscribed & think you should too. I have no doubt that this will be informative, insightful, & funny, just as her blog is.

Menu Plan Monday June 14

We have a really busy week. David is in Parents' Day Out on Tuesday & Thursday & he has swim lessons Monday-Thursday evening which begins at 6. I'm not sure how well this menu will work considering we need to be out the door by 5:15. I tried to pick easy to fix items.

Sunday - pizza
Monday - tuna salad (plenty leftover for lunches), rolls, garden salad (lettuce from our own garden)
Tuesday - pasta with alfredo, chicken, & broccoli
Wednesday - meatloaf, mashed potatoes, carrots (all in the freezer)
Thursday - spaghetti, garlic bread, salad
Friday - stir fry
Saturday - leftovers

I need to begin also doing a menu plan for lunch. Eventually I'd like to incorporate breakfast too so we don't end up eating cereal every morning.

Do you ever look at those messages at the bottom of receipts? Some times you're receipt is a mile long because of all the messages. This evening we went to Arby's for our free Chicken Club. After we got home I happened to look at the message at the bottom of the receipt. By taking 5 minutes to complete their online survey I can now get a Regular Roast Beef or Beef N Cheddar for FREE. I'll be paying more attention to those messages now.

Menu Plan Monday June 7

My menu plan usually just consists of dinner. I try to make sure we have plenty of leftovers for lunches. Also, I don't usually cook on the weekends. We eat leftovers, quick meals, or some times my husband cooks.

Sunday - salad (with lettuce from our garden) with chicken, Sister Schubert rolls (YUM!)
Monday - Poppy Seed Chicken, brown rice (actually I usually do half brown rice & half barley; I'll probably make enough for leftovers & another meal later in the week), salad
Tuesday - Waffles, eggs (maybe), fruit
Wednesday - Hamburger patties, Knorr stroganoff noodles, green beans
Thursday - stir fry with chicken, brown rice (& barley)
Friday - homemade pizza
Saturday - leftovers

ideas for lunches & snacks:
hot dogs
peanut butter
power muffins (in freezer)
raw veggies (carrots, celery)
homemade yogurt
graham crackers
